Cisco 2900 Series Switches are industry’s leading small form factor fixed configuration, high-density switch.Cisco Systems Catalyst 2900 Series boasts the most comprehensive line of low-cost high-quality stand-alone 10/100 Fast Ethernet switches on the market. The Catalyst 2900 has made a name for itself by offering entry-level enterprises the same solid performance, versatile modularity, and easy-to-use management often provided to only large networks.Catalyst 2900 series gives consumers the luxury of choice at a great price.small business network professional can fit a Catalyst 2900 Series to his exact needs, with the options of several different port densities.
Cisco Catalyst 2900 series switches provide 10/100 autosensing and auto-negotiating interfaces for enterprise level high-speed configuration flexibility in the wiring closet. The Catalyst 2900 series is ideal for Ethernet workgroups and individual users that want the investment protection of 10BaseT and 100BaseTX connectivity alternatives without the need to replace wiring closet network devices. This product series also provides dual high-speed 100BaseTX or 100BaseFX up links for wiring closet riser connections to the backbone, or to servers. The Catalyst 2900 series is part of a comprehensive line of high-performance enterprise switches designed to help you easily migrate from traditional shared media LANs to fully switched networks. The Catalyst 2900 series supports up to 16,000 MAC addresses and provide either 14 or 26 Fast Ethernet switched ports in four configurations.
Cisco Switches Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR Series are fixed-configuration, stackable Gigabit Ethernet switches that provide enterprise-class access for campus and branch applications. Designed for operational simplicity to lower total cost of ownership, they enable scalable, secure and energy-efficient business operations with intelligent services and a range of advanced Cisco IOS ® Software features.The Cisco 2900 Series is architected to meet the application demands of today’s branch offices with design flexibility for future applications. The modular architecture is designed to support increasing bandwidth requirements, Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) interconnections, and fully integrated power distribution to modules supporting 802.3 Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Cisco Enhanced PoE (ePoE). Unified communications services in the branch office are significantly enhanced with the use of a TDM interconnectivity fabric in the system architecture, allowing for scaling of DS-0 channel capacity.The Cisco 2900 Series provides significantly enhanced modular capabilities (refer to Table 3) offering investment protection for customers. Most of the modules available on previous generations of Cisco routers, such as the Cisco 2800 Series, are supported on the Cisco 2900 Series.
